It is my great honour to serve as the President of AAPBS.
Since 2004, AAPBS has played a growingly important role in refining and shaping the future of business education in the Asia-Pacific region. The expanding network is able to provide member schools a great platform to connect and collaborate, with our shared mission to advance the standard of business and management education.

In the years ahead, the role of AAPBS will become more important, as the global growth engine continues shifting to the East, driven by some of the fastest growing economies in the world and their unexplored potential.

As a regional business education alliance of over 130 members, we need to work closer together to develop the next generation of business leaders for the region.I believe our joint endeavours will help resolve common issues we all face in meeting the new demand for quality business education.

With the ongoing momentum in the region, we have many good reasons to get together for closer and broader collaborations. AAPBS will provide a remarkable network to enhance our understanding of the region and build a stronger link with our peers in Asia and beyond.
